Thread: Best Comme des Garcons
What is your favorite fragrance of perfume house Comme des Garcons and what is proposed as ideal for hot days or the entire year?
CdG 2 is a versatile frag IMO.
Another vote for No2 , also love No3 , the incense series , the sweet series if you can find them ....
CdG is a very nice perfume house.
I need to learn more about this house, I liked the first CdG I sampled titled Wonderwood.

Avignon and Zagorsk are my favourite from the incense series, both are very churchy, (but the whole incense series is brilliant), I like the original CdG parfum (spicy rose, with lots of clove and nutmeg), Cdg2 Man and Sequoia from the red series. One of the Guerrilla series ( i think the number two) I remember to be a lovely floral. It is a very good house in my opinion, with extravagant fragrances.
I've tried many and own(ed) a few and among those I love Jaisalmer, CdG 2 MAN and Vettiveru. But if I had to choose one only, it'd be 2. It's a very special fragrance to me.
I love Incense Series: Ouarzazate, lovely and very versatile. Not the most interesting fragrance from the house, but by far the most wearable one for me, year-round. I suspect that Odeur 53 makes a great hot weather scent.
Comme des Garçons Parfum, 2 Man, White, Avignon, Kyoto and Monocle Scent One: Hinoki are all marvellous, too.
Where can I find Comme de Garcons frags?
Everyone is somebody's weirdo.
Think I got mine from luckyscent.
I enjoy Avignon, Quarzazate, and Vettiveru enough to have picked up bottles. I have many samples I've yet to test from CdG so my experience is limited.
I'd say the smooth Vettiveru is a great year-round scent (vetiver in the same ballpark as L'Occitane, Roger & Gallet, etc.).
Next best are: Kyoto, Jaisalmer, Ouarzazate, Sequoia, CdG Man2, CdG EdP, Hinoki Scent One, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Vetiveru, Wonderwood.
The Original EDP, 2 Man, and I will say the Anbar Cologne is one of the longest lasting EDCs I have ever worn. It behaves more like an EDT.
I have order a sample of Cdg 2 man. Does it have some similarities with L`homme Sage?
I haven't smelled L'homme Sage yet, but I could imagine that the fragrances from Divine would be quite different than CdG.
Strangely i've just received in the post today a full bottle of Avignon and a sample of Kyoto.
On first test i do prefer the Avignon and it has much better longevity (Kyoto disappeared quite quickly on me).
Of the other CdG i've tried, i haven't disliked any of them as was very impressed by Wonderwood and it may be a future purchase.
For me, its CdG original scent, Kyoto, and the Carnation.
It was a calculated risk. Unfortunately, I'm bad at math.
Hinoki is a Holy Grail for me and I also love many more from the house. No one does wood and incense like CDG
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
2Man and Wonderwood, love 2Man especially. Hinoki is a great fragrance as well, however it's not one for daily usage.
